Hello there, fellow Mod Podgers! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, with an easy, sparkly and fun ornament tutorial to share with you all today. It’s hard to believe that Christmas is just a couple of weeks away, but don’t worry, these ornaments come together quickly and easily. These would even make adorable gift toppers!

Step 1: First, you’ll need to trace your letter onto scrapbook paper and cut out. I got these letters from Michaels, but any craft store will have something similar. Don’t forget to cut a piece for the back side of your letter as well!
Once you’re done, you’ll have this . . .
Step 3: Now for the fun part! I used extra fine gold glitter for this, but whatever you have on hand will work. What worked best for me was to lay a small pile of glitter on a piece of paper, add Mod Podge to a portion of my letter, and dip the letter in the glitter. For the smaller nooks and crannies of the letters, where a foam brush couldn’t reach, use a small paintbrush or Q-tip to apply the Mod Podge.
